Organising a fun and memorable kiddie’s party is no easy matter and most parents look on these events with trepidation. Planning, co-ordinating and arranging a party is not only expensive, but also very time consuming.
My advice, and I speak with experience, having four daughters, is to hand the party over to a professional and one of the best party venues and co-ordinators is to be found at Holmeleigh Farmyard, which is situated along Grey Dawn Road in Kragga Kamma Park, Port Elizabeth.
This venue has been around for many years with many parents of today remembering Holmeleigh Farm with fond memories from when they were younger.
Holmeleigh Farmyard offers an affordable party package, which includes all activities and catering. Of course, the big draw card is the animals, many of which can be touched, held or ridden.
Even as an adult, I have enjoyed walking through the farm and watching my kids run from one animal enclosure shouting with excitement.
The farmyard is neat and tidy and everything is provided from bowls of animal feed to a hand washing facility. After cuddling, petting and being licked by such an array of animals this last feature is vital!
Holmeleigh Farmyard’s party package includes the exclusive use of one of their party venues, feed for the farm animals, a pony/tractor ride, full access to the playground and jumping castle, a party-pack filled with chips, chocolates, loose sweets and a Liquifruit as well as the assistance of a party guide!
As parents, your only concern is to bring the cake and any special decorations that you want to use to enhance the already pleasant environment. The venue is easily accessible, has ample parking and, in the case of bad weather, the fun and games can continue under weather-proof roofs.
As one mom explained; “The party guide will help you coordinate your party and keep the kiddies entertained, while you take all the credit – even as you relax in the Tea Garden or stroll through Holmeleigh Farm’s lovely gift shop”.
So, call Holmeleigh Farmyard for your next kiddies party and relax, it’s in safe hands. Call 041 379 2901 today or visit www.holmeleighfarmyard.co.za for more information.
